Survivors would not run out of small arms ammunition for generations. The BATFE estimates between 300 to 400 billion rounds, that is around one third of a trillion rounds, of small arms ammunition in US in civilian hands, retail and wholesale pipelines, law enforcement and military (in that order). Even if if 1/3 were shot in initial zombie world and 1/3 were destroyed or never found, there would still be millions and millions of rounds of ammunition -- per survivor -- available. Contact weapons might be wise for dealing with most zombies due to noise, but everyone would be always carrying and using firearms to deter other humans and use as last ditch against unexpected large numbers of zombies.

So after reading the review "An honest perception" I felt like I needed to write my own review. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. However, that being said I have to disagree with the reviewer.
So here are the reasons I like the show.
First, character development, this is not usually a very big trait in the Zombie genre. If you only watched 3 episodes, this is a big part of what you watched. They take the time to give you a slight background of the characters, a chance for you to get to know them. For those of us that are big fans of the Zombie genre it gave us a chance to think "Who would I be?" in this situation.
Second, the story doesn't follow a straight line. This was a point of contention in the other review. I personally like the multiple story lines. It keeps things interesting and keeps it from becoming a boring show where I can foresee how everything is going to turn out. And before anyone says it YES I know this is based off a graphic novel. I haven't read it and will refrain from reading it for a while.
Third, the zombies look and act pretty bad ass. The make up is done great, not a bunch of CGI which is so common in today's world. So anyway if you aren't a fan of the zombie genre to begin with then yeah, you probably aren't going to get why so many of us love the show. However, I think most fans of the genre will love this show.
So in closing, for those of us who love the genre, It's a weekly dose of zombie apocalypse.
For those that aren't fans of the genre, when the zombie apocalypse happens and you don't know what to do don't come crying to me and my friends you'll just slow us down.
On second thought you may come in handy in case we need to make a hasty retreat
